With the predicted bad weather, I really didn't think we would have many adoptions this weekend, but I was finishing up the third adoption of the day at Petsmart, when the the power went out and stayed out until late that night due to storms. Wilma, Kismet, Charlie Girl, and Luke Duke were adopted this weekend.
Poor Charlie Girl, everyone called her fat - or asked if she was pregnant (no, absolutely not! We have a 100% spay/neuter before adoption policy no exceptions). Honestly, I was about to make her a little tag for her cage that said "I'm NOT pregnant, I'm just fat!!!" because everytime someone stopped by, they would ask if she was pregnant. Charlie Girl's foster mom told me she's muscular and I'd scold her and ask her to cut back on the amount of food she gets because Charlie Girl was overweight, not muscular. Well, Charlie Girl was adopted by a couple that are both personal fitness trainers and one is also a nutritionalist. Charlie Girl will be on a meal and fitness plan in no time! They are already switching over her food to kitty weight loss food.
The storms were frightening, and all I could think about while at Petsmart where my personal cats and the fosters at my house - I was so worried. But all of our volunteers and cats are safe. However, the damage in this area is devastating, many lives were lost, so much damage to property everywhere, and my heart goes out to everyone affected by this weekend's tornadoes.
